With advantages like easy-to-use online pre-registration and check-in, a real-time wait clock, mobile X-ray and large exam rooms, the new Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care locations in Springdale and Rogers are designed to make health care easy and convenient.

After blessing and ribbon cutting ceremonies Thursday, the first two Mercy-GoHealth sites open to patients Friday, Dec. 21. The Springdale location is at 4962 Elm Springs Road, Suite 5. The Rogers location is at 2012 S. Promenade Blvd. Both centers will be open seven days a week, 365 days a year. Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

“These are not only our first Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care centers in Northwest Arkansas, but also some of the first centers in our multi-market joint venture with Mercy,” said Todd Latz, CEO of GoHealth Urgent Care. “Partnering with an innovative and integrated health system like Mercy will enable us to provide more connected and comprehensive care, complete with integrated electronic medical records and same-day or next-day appointments with specialists when needed. We look forward to providing the highest level of care and quality to Northwest Arkansas families.”
